Unhappy Floating on highways.

Hi Everyone,

the car doesn't go straight when I drive on highways! Even i feel strange when some heavy vehicle passes by in speed. I recently did the balancing? this could be related to tyres?

Could be worn tires, too much variation in tire PSI between tires, worn wheel bearing, dragging brake, etc.

Check tires comparing condition with the other side. Lift each tire up compare effort to rotate tire with opposite side.

Alignment can also cause problems but check the obvious first.

What year of car?

Did you check the wheel bearings and brakes for dragging?

it's 2008 camry. is it possible to check wheel bearings myself? (without mechanic help)

Also I've checked the break with mechanic recently he said brakepads are more than 60% okay and he did discs polishing. after that breaks seems find to me.
